Such a Haole
Here's to natto, wherever you're from!
I walk in the store thinking
Singing to the Jpop on the store sound system
Customers stare when I buy natto.
Then I pick up nori flavored potato chips
I put the natto, daikon, anpan, nori potato chips, and a box of miso on the counter
“That all sir?”
I answer my phone then hang up
“You speak Japanese?”
“Pretty good. Both my parents are Japanese but I cannot speak.”
When I see fish tanks I think, “yum.” Then
see me watching myself with fish swimming through
my shark belly white face
Such a haole
